Pirates trade pitcher Gerrit Cole to Houston Astros

Pirates trade pitcher Gerrit Cole to Houston Astros

At 12:14 p.m. Wednesday afternoon, Morosi broke the news that the talks were done and that both sides "reached an agreement" on Cole.

The Astros' owner, Jim Crane, said that his team is looking for a "high-end starter", and while he didn't name names, he did say that said starter could come through a trade or free agency.

Well, this is certainly a shock: Jeff Passan hears from a source that there is no deal in place for Gerrit Cole and that all of this was a "false rumor".

Cole to Houston also would be a tough blow for the New York Yankees, as the New York Daily News reported Monday that the Bronx Bombers landing the one-time All-Star was "inevitable."

Jon Morosi also reported that a key factor in any Cole deal would be that his arbitration deal has not been finalized which would give control to either team or another suitor. Remember, the Yankees drafted Cole back in 2008 and were hot after him in December but the deal fell off. Houston and NY are both loaded with possible prospects.

This trade is the latest in a series of aggressive, focused moves by the Astros.

With Cole alongside Keuchel, Verlander and Lance McCullers Jr., the Astros would have an excellent top four in their starting rotation.

In his 2017 campaign, Cole went 12-12 (W-L is meaningless in my opinion) with a 1.25 WHIP and had an ERA of 4.26.
